Meet Phil Angee, the Boneheaded Blogger

This is Phil Angee. He's a real bonehead. He got banned from Facebook because, well, he has no face (obviously), and apparently that's against their community standards.

Beer Battered Fish

As my cousin's van rattled through the English countryside, I debated whether the Pennines should actually be referred to as "mountains".
